On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I wrote to the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 15 December on behalf of my constituent, Mr. Raymond Hardy, who, like 30,000 others, had deposits with Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander in the Isle of Man. I have repeatedly chased up the Treasury for an answer. Yesterday, the Treasury e-mailed me, saying:

"We are unsure when a final reply would be sent to you, as we have several thousand outstanding cases to be signed by ministers or drafted by officials. I would like to sincerely apologise for the delay in replying, but HMT correspondence has almost trebled over the past few months, and we simply do not have enough staff to complete all cases in time."

So, I and other Members have constituents who cannot meet their commitments because they cannot access moneys, which are supposed to be guaranteed, yet their Members of Parliament cannot get an answer from the Treasury. Please could you help in ensuring that the Treasury does something about it?

The Treasury couldnt give two hoots to the thousands of British Citizens - forced to use offshore banks and then thrown into destitution by the actions of Darling and the Tresury - yet pays its rich friends (IE. Dave Whelan) very quickly.

WE ARE DYING DUE TO THE ACTIONS OF OUR GOVERNMENT, YET THE TREASURY, BROWN, DARLING, CRYER, PEARSON and the rest of the sleazy bunch dont give a toss.

For shame on you for causing hard working British Citizens to lose their life saving?s

Why are you evading the issue?
